Syd replaced Evan on the left wing and dominated his position. GNP managed to lob Lewis in goal after 2 minutes of the second half quickly followed by a great football by Syd down the wing crossing the ball to Callum who scored giving the keeper no chance of saving it.

U13 Warriors V U13 Juniors Match Report

The game today saw both Bedworth teams play on their home pitch for an early kick off. Juniors won the toss against George, captain for Warriors today. The first half saw a fair game with both teams playing well, Juniors having a few more shots but Lewis was a cat in goal as usual and made some great saves and challenges.

Twenty minutes in, Lewis came out for the challenge but was dribbled around, lucky Curtis chased the ball down and made a saving goal line clearance. Warriors took the lead after thirty minutes with a great ball from Alfie W playing a different position today in left midfield feeding the ball to Harrison whose shot was deflected by the keeper. George picked up the deflection and found the back of the net. The first half ended 1-0 to Warriors.

Mac replaced Alfie in the second half playing on the left wing and Juniors started the second half fighting hard and scored the equaliser after twelve minutes. Warriors continued to defend well with Syd playing left back. He had a great game supported by Ollie W in midfield and Ollie J in defence. Harrison’s pace was not quite enough today against a fast defender. In the closing minutes, Juniors chipped Lewis to win the game 2-1 after Warriors queried a hand ball. Man of the match was Syd for his hard work and determination at right back.

U13 Warriors V Coventry Sphinx Match Report

Sundays cup game was a game of “who was next” for the lads when it came to injuries. With one sub it was going to be a challenge, with things getting more of a challenge when Woody had to come off after 20 minutes with a slight twinge in the leg. Further injuries from Titch, George and Curtis left us down to ten for the last ten minutes with some players having to play through their injuries.

This all said, the lads dug deep from the start and the first half we were only 1-0 down. Chances were created, with Callum being unlucky with two chances and plucky challenges from Sphinx preventing George, Evan and Jon from getting their shots off. Defence played so much better and a new formation gave the opposition something to think about. Some top saves from man of the match Lewis who frustrated the opposition, game ended 3-0

The lads have shown so much improvement already in the few games and are getting to grips with the 11 aside pitch. We’ll keep training hard, learning from each game and bring it to the next.
